When I was 5 years old my favorite cartoon was The Challenge Of The Gobots, an animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera, based on the Gobots toy-line released from Tonka. I remember drawing epic battles between the heroic Guardians and the evil Renegades and I insisted on begin called “Scooter” Parker. I dressed like Leader-1 for Halloween. I was a Gobots super fan. I wanted to be a Gobot.

Here are two NEW illustrations I created of Leader-1 (leader of the Guardians) and Cy-kill (Leader of the Renegades) from The Challenge Of The Gobots. I had a blast drawing these illustrations and I’m fighting the urge to draw more of them. I would love to draw Crasher and Turbo and the rest of the principal characters from the show. I need to focus my creative energy on some other projects that need my immediate attention, but I might visit Gobotron from time to time and draw more Gobots.

I love the barter system because I can trade graphic design or illustration services for awesome things like comic books and burritos or more practical things like dental work and picture framing. I recently designed a logo for Save Your Brain Society in exchange for a delicious Chipotle burrito. I love drawing zombies and I love eating burritos and I love having full creative control over a project.

I recently designed the logo for mycollegemoneyplan.org, a website developed by the Financial Literacy Project at Wichita State University under a federal College Access Challenge Grant through the Kansas Board of Regents. The grant administrator is the Office for Faculty Development and Student Success.

The website is designed to first assist college bound students in selecting post-secondary education that not only meets their academic and career goals but also focus on what the student and family can reasonably afford. It contains worksheets and guidance to help build a multi-year financial plan. Secondly, the course offers basic personal financial management education to equip the first-year college student with information and skills needed to attain life-long financial independence.
